The ESOP Association Signs Letter Seeking Support for Senate Resolution on the Private Retirement Savings System

In October 2012, The ESOP Association, along with 22 other organizations concerned about the tax treatment of employer-provided retirement plans, signed a letter encouraging members of the Senate to co-sponsor a resolution showing support for the private retirement savings system. The letter states: “We are writing to ask you to co-sponsor a bi-partisan resolution that will be introduced by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA) expressing the sense of the Congress that our current tax incentives for retirement savings provide important benefits to Americans to help plan for a financially secure retirement.”

If you would like a copy of the letter, please send an email to media@esopassociation.org with Senate Resolution Letter in the subject line.

Additionally, The ESOP Association will be joining a new retirement based group called the Coalition to Protect Retirement which is aimed at protecting retirement plans in the U.S. For more information on the Coalition to Protect Retirement, visit the website at How America Saves.
